First Photos: The New Kadey-Krogen 52′ Has Arrived

The first Kadey-Krogen 52′ arrived in the U.S. in time for the recent Seattle Boat Show and made her public debut there. The timing was so tight that the Kadey-Krogen team hadn’t had a chance to really begin the commissioning process, so in many of these photos you will see a fairly bare interior. I happen to like seeing it like this since I can use my imagination to decorate and outfit to my own taste.

Some things to notice:

  • The fabulous galley, including the Viking range and oven. I need to invite my superyacht chef friend Victoria Allman to come and play in this lovely workspace.
  • The office space below decks, which, in this two-stateroom configuration, really opens up the lower area with a functional, flexible area for work, navigation planning, and normal household management chores.
  • The expansive helm/dash setup. There’s room here for multiple big-screen displays so you can take advantage of all the latest technology, including monitoring, networked navigation and other sensors, and provide redundancy and flexibility. There is also plenty of room for two helm chairs; a feature I really like for longer passages.
  • The engine room has lots of space in which to work, especially with the standard single John Deere 6068AFM75, a continuous duty 231hp engine. Plenty of lighting and sturdy grab rails make those regular engine room checks underway more comfortable and safer.

Kadey-Krogen has released the first photos of the nearly complete first Krogen 52′, which should be leaving the factory shortly by ship in time (hopefully) to make its debut at Seattle’s Lake Union Boats Afloat Show September 14.  This all-new design shows classic Krogen lines in a raised pilothouse model.  There’s no mistaking what company this yacht is from.  It’s a bluewater passagemaker and liveaboard yacht intended to meet the full-time needs of a couple or family.  Enjoy the photos and if you get to the Boats Afloat Show, let us know what you think!  Failing that, we may see hull #2 at the Fort Lauderdale Trawler Fest in early February next year.

Kadey-Krogen Yachts said today that hull number one of the new Krogen 52′ line has been released from its mold.  Krogen 5201 will be a single engine vessel with hydraulic bow and stern thrusters.  The new yacht is scheduled to be delivered sometime this summer.

There’s a lot to like about this slightly smaller version of the Krogen 58′.  We have written about the new boat before here on OceanLines.  You can see all the photos at the Kadey-Krogen website here.
